Homoconjugality and homoparenthood in Portugal: a case study.
Nuevas aportaciones sociológicas: género, psicología y sociedad
Based on a qualitative interview of a non-heterosexual young men living in homoconjugality, the article aims to analyze his biographical pathway, his expectations, representations, values and the way in which these variables intersect and shape the conjugal and family dynamics. The findings reveal that the variables mentioned above come together with homophobia, heteronorma-tivity and others structural constraints of Portuguese society to configure the conjugal relationship and both the conjugal and parental transition. This is a case study that aims to shed light to the importance of the individual and his / her biographical trajectory (Cardenal, 2016; Santos, 2014). We aim to prob-lematize and wonder about the issues mentioned above.
